    Cool yeah, we are still trying to find a local tranny shop we trust to do the DCT clutch pack installs. Let me know how they work, we will prob be doing them in the N55 soon.

    Nope not at all. The maps are edit and made in tunerpro. The only difference is that your not tied to the Cobb unit for a flasher.

    PURE handled everything for me but I think the actual transmission work is done at a trans shop next to theirs.

    For those of us who have been around a long time, sometimes it's just fun to do something new with the car. The singles give you a completely different experience and change a lot of the little things (for better or worse) about the platform. From rattle, to sound, to power delivery, to power attainable on pump gas, etc. So if you're bored with the car I'd definitely go single. :) If you are fully satisfied and just want to add another 50-100whp, the hybrid twins with open intakes, are putting down impressive numbers these days.

    Not surprised you are avoiding the point, so if he is collecting data for you, then you sent him to the track on stock axles and 700+WHP? Which since you are so experienced at the strip per your own post, you should have warned him against such a move. Also driver error did not break the axles, trying to launch a 700WHP E9X on stock axles is what broke them, as I said I have broken two on them on street shifts at much lower power levels. One launch attempt on stock axles at those levels if done hard enough will put you on a tow truck, no if, ands, or buts.

    Hey guys, We were finally able to find time to pickup our 2015 M3 DCT from PURE Turbo to test out the new Dodson clutch packs. The car is equipped with PURE S2 turbos, JB4, ER pipes, and a meth injection kit. The clutch packs run around $3200 installed. I'll be testing these at Shift Sector and No Fly Zone 1/2 mile events at the end of April but I was able to do a little advance testing on a private track. So far, no DCT slippage shifting at up to 29psi. And the shifts feel firm and crisp. The OEM clutch packs would slip at around 26psi. So definite improvement. During routine driving the clutch packs feel like stock. The only hint of a difference is when you're coming to a stop and the car shifts in to 1st or when putting it in gear. I hear and feel a subtle jolt as it shifts in to 1st. My new problem: Traction. Especially in 3rd gear. Even with Toyo R888s out back. Fortunately I've recently added 3rd gear boost limiting to the JB4 which was just what the doctor ordered for 60-130 testing. Without the limiting at 29psi it was spin city in 3rd. Same goes for 26psi. So for my last run I limited boost in 3rd by 5psi, down to 21psi, which made for improved traction and .2ths quicker 60-130 over my spin city 29psi run! This is on 50% meth (boost juice) and 94 octane fuel, full weight, so the car will get faster when I find the time to go get a clean 30psi run in. Up next I promised Jesse some 91 and 93 octane tuning so I'll work on that and get back to 60-130 stuff in a couple weeks.

    I am assuming you didn't read post #7 then. I have no idea what Vendor X said, I was responding to a user who said he did not want to get in the middle of the spat, I told him it was a one sided spat, as we were not indulging the BS. So again I ask, please point out a post, where I make mention to anything posted (which I cannot see) or directly respond to Vendor X, there isn't one. As far as the HPFP, they made a number of changes to the internals as well. We have seen them lasting much longer.

    There are systems in place to prevent this, the car will run on the LPFP alone, it will have very low low power but it will run. We did extensive testing while working on the shotgun, we would actually unplug the HPFP, and drive the car for 20-30 miles, it ran fine with 75 psi of HPFP. Usually a no start is LPFP. Put the cobb on, and watch the lpfp, and hpfp in real time. See if you are getting pressure. By the way, COOL ASS VIDEO!

    Not suprised I have to repeat what I already posted for you. Customer was suppose to get a couple of clean passes to get some data. He did not want to invest in axles yet because we are installing the AD Engineering rearend kit on this car soon. nope lol.

    I have access to E60 in the winter and E70-E72 in the summer, but I don't think any pumps local to me are ever more than E72.. Minnesota has the most ethanol pumps in the nation. I do not have access to 93 octane though, and I even question the quality of the 92 octane I do have access to. Regarding the cost.. I know I titled the thread "economics", but the more I research this, the more I realize this was probably a poorly titled thread. However, I don't think anyone wants to get less and pay more, which I think is entirely possible: I think its possible that with inlets and upgraded twins, running ethanol mix w/proper fueling and tuning, could have more usable power before 5000rpm than several ST kits on the market now. Even the smallest ST option I think has less area under the curve until after 5k rpm. Now.. you did add an interesting twist to this, something I didn't consider: ST fueling vs. Twins If I can get 550 whp with a smaller ST setup + E30, with a similar power profile as upgraded twins, but with less octane and egt/wgdc, then perhaps this is something I hadn't even considered. With the added bonus of easily swapping turbos and adding fueling in the future if my goals change.

    10k! Lol...yea, no. I'll be WELL under this, and that's with an EFR8374 and a decent amount of custom one-off fab that isn't privy to "full production kit cost savings." I'll be sure to post a final spreadsheet of all costs...people are going to be surprised ;) As for the upgraded twins vs. ST argument, it not only depends on your power goals, it also depends on your available fuel. If you want big power on pump gas, no stock frame upgrade is going to do that for you.

    This sounds familiar...is this related at all to the project some BB members are working on? I seem to recall talks of an open source android based flasher being made along with all the new tables being defined by @jyamona and them. Looking through the thread on the other site and all of the bullshit "Q logic" marketing mumbo jumbo it sound like Wedge and Buraq took the idea and made their own proprietary version where maps are locked and you have to get a brotune from wedge. Sounds kinda like OFT all over again. "open source" but not really open at all.

    We know they fit perfectly on RHD vehicles, you are a perfect example, if anyone thinks installing a set of intakes on an N54 is going to be a walk in the park is mistaken. The RHD, and LHD cars use the SAME factory inlets, our inlets follow the same factory path, there is no problem with the coolant pipes. 19 out of 20 installs that went perfectly, and one install that says there is a fitment issue, tells me its an isolated problem.
